Ok, full disclosure, I don't yet own this blu ray. But I have seen Miami Connection several times and plan to upgrade my old vhs rip with this product (which merits the 5 star rating based on the assumption that the transfer isn't absolute garbage). Thus, I am giddy at the prospect that the world is now discovering the many pleasures of Miami Connection.
Miami Connection is an action movie, a study of what happens when ninjas tragically divert their powers toward the forces of evil & greed, a rock odyssey, an anti-drug screed, a glorious collection of poorly choreographed extras and slow-moving onscreen fighting, and one of the most endearing & endearingly hilarious films ever made. This is the un-self-conscious, unintentional version of what films like Machete, Hobo with a Shotgun, The FP, and the ending movie-within-a-movie in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure have tried to be.
"Tae kwon do is the *best*."
-Grandmaster Y.K. Kim, auteur of Miami Connection, purveyor of infinite optimism & brotherhood
"Friends forever, we'll be together. / We're on top, 'cause we play to wi-in. / Friends for eternity, Loyalty, honesty, / Stay together through thick and thi-in."
-Dragon Sound, taekwondo practitioners, adorable roommates, hard rockers, community watch group, anti-powder drug warriors, stars & soundtrack of one of the most entertaining films of all time
"Only by eliminating violence can world peace be achieved."
